Ilosaarirock Festival 12th – 14th July 2013

Aino Venna

Aino Venna

Chansons in sub-zero temperatures? Sometimes the most impossible and unlikely ideas carry far. Aino Venna may not have the ultimate winning hand, but this doesn't seem to bother one of the most promising singer-songwriters in Finland. The result is like a café au lait and a croissant enjoyed in the suburbs of Joensuu.

There is more to Aino Venna than just France. The excellent debut album Marlene flirts shamelessly with some old pop and rock music, Italo-schlager, and slower tunes from the bygone times in general. Venna has a lot in common with the likes of Emily Loizeau, who successfully combines modern and retro vibes.

After over a hundred gigs with her band, Aino Venna knows how to take her audience no matter the place or time. This artist is right at home by the misty Seine before sunrise, as well as at rock festivals under the hot summer sun.
